One more question for you! *sorry!* what size chainmail rings did you use?!Thank you SO much for creating this awesome piece of art AND sharing how to make one of our own. Smiley I appreciate reading all of your replies to help people on here as well as flickr. My boyfriend and I are doing the craft together and so far it's been a great thing for us to accomplish and create together (and we haven't even gotten all the supplies yet, nor even really started haha)

@javamama - I actually have a slide/35mm film scanner.  Well, actually, I have two scanners - one specifically for slide and 35mm film, and a flatbed scanner that scan bigger transparent images, like 120 sized film.  You can find 35mm scanners at places like Costco for around $100, maybe a little more.  I know I saw a bunch being sold on ebay for cheaper than that.  Here's an amazon link so you can see what they look like:  http://www.amazon.com/35mm-Negative-Film-Slide-Scanner/dp/B001PNNF3A  Or, alternately, there are places that will scan your slides in for you and placed them on a cd for a certain fee.  So, you kind of have to see how many slides you have, and what would be cheaper for you to do.

@wvonelovechick - The slides I actually used to make the curtain were ones I bought in an antique store in Kansas City.  I've found odd lots of slides every so often at random antique stores.  A lot of times they're in slide carousels, so if you see a carousel, make sure to check it out because it may be loaded with slides.  Yay!  Also, a friend of mine found a major stash of trashed slides somewhere at his university, and sent a ton of them to me, which was awesome x 10.  Additionally, slide film is still available to buy and shoot.  It may take a little bit of searching to find some at a local store, but it's available readily online.  I think a lot of places like Walmart (even though I'm not a fan of Walmat) will develop the slide film.  They normally send it out to a lab, and it may take a little bit longer to get developed than regular film, but yay!  Slides!

@letsgobowlingx - That's awesome that you and your boyfriend are crafting together.  Smiley  You must post pics of your progress!  The chainmail rings that we used were .25 inch 18awg.  There's a little bit more info available in the comments on the picture of the door, if you need more info about supplies.  We ordered stuff from the Ring Lord - http://www.theringlord.com/

Thanks! I will definitely be looking out for something like this. We have so many, that I can't imagine it would be cheaper to pay someone else. I also own the professional negatives from my wedding, and was looking to scan those in too. Looks like this may take care of both! thanks for the advice!

I am so glad I'm not the only who does these kinds of things with old slides!  The book buddy sale at my campus sells the old stuff from the library, and last year it was anatomy slides.  My chiropractic friends who are roomates love their new curtains Cheesy

Oh man, anatomy slides would be wicked cool...  I've got some that look like architectural sketches, but nothing that screams, for instance, BRAINS!!!  Smiley

Oh wow. I'm totally in love with this. I know of a box of slides in my mom's garage that I need to scan eventually. Maybe afterwards I'll make them into a curtain like this!
